Apache Tomcat

Hello everyone!

Quick question, I have Netbeans 6.0 installed on my computer. However, I need to do some of this stuff "the old fashioned" way so that I can learn this. Since I already have the IDE, do I need to install Apache Tomcat?

The choice is whether to install it again is entirely up to you With the bundled Tomcat, you still can use Tomcat in the old-fashioned way. Create a web project, but don't click deploy/undeploy. Create a WAR file and then deploy it in the Tomcat webapps directory.

In Linux, it's in $HOME/.netbeans/6.0/apache-tomcat-6.0.14_base.
In Windows, it's in the C:\Document and Settings\{username}\.netbeans\6.0\apache-tomcat-6.0.14_base.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your response. I'll most likely install it again.
I agree. Here's the link:
